wow, St. John's...I know quite a few people that go there. It's hard not to think of athletics when you hear about SJP because the school is well known for producing some of the best teams and players in Massachusetts. The campus is fairly nice, mostly brick buildings. The head of their school is a dynamic man, who could go on all day about "The Prep Experience", or the long lasting effect of an SJP education. Most of my friends that ended up going there were all above average students in their hometown public school system; not the top students, but well-rounded, bright kids.
Along with athletics, the school has a well-known drama program. The majority of kids that go to "The Prep" come from the Northshore of Mass., including towns such as Danvers, Peabody and Salem.
